As soon as your glass block windows are installed, you should be able to enjoy them. Faulty installations, however, can cost you more money, for both replacement and compensation. And to make things worse, the issue could be raising your energy bill since your home will be less efficient. To prevent this, read about these common window problems and how to fix them.
Using the Same Windows
Sometimes, replacing the window with another one of the same type won’t work. That’s because the problem you’re experiencing with the current window might actually be due to the window type rather than an issue with the window parts. For example, you might think that a double hung is the only option, but it might not bring in much light, leading to issues with natural lighting. Instead, consider replacing it with another type. For example, try using wavy window glass instead. It can bring in lots of light while giving you privacy.
Ignoring Glazing Options
Window types aren’t the only variation option. You can also modify the glass as a way to make your room stand out. For your bathrooms, you can get a glass block design for added style. We offer wavy, ice glass, diamond and clarity blocks. They all give you a good amount of light and privacy.
Soon after installation, you might still see condensation form. If the glass gets foggy, it could be a sign of failing weatherstripping. This means your glass could be leaking air, which means more energy inefficiency in your home. Have the leak sealed up properly to stop droplets from forming inside.
The biggest problem for your window installation is hiring the wrong contractor. If you get an amateur, it can ruin the installation of your glass block windows. Instead, you might get less light and privacy than you wanted. Make sure you hire a licensed contractor with years of experience.
